I'm starting Cardiff Met in September as a postgraduate student (llandaff campus) and will be moving to Cardiff with my boyfriend but we don't really know where to start when looking for accommodation. The accommodation website says not to use letting agents because of fees and stuff, but the list they sent me of trusted landlords isn't especially helpful since there are no photos or proper descriptions of what the properties are like. How do people usually go about arranging private sector housing for Cardiff Met? Does anyone have any advice about where to start? We've looked on rightmove and stuff but there doesn't seem to be a huge range of affordable housing.
...and how to stay positive
